The traditional classification of congenital aortic arch abnormalities was described by James Stewart and colleagues in 1964. Since that time, advances in diagnostic imaging technology have led to better delineation of the vasculature anatomy and the identification of previously unrecognized and unclassified anomalies. In this manuscript, we review the existing literature and propose a series of modifications to the original Stewart classification of congenital aortic arch abnormalities to incorporate this new knowledge. In brief, we propose the following modifications: (1) In Group I, we further divide subgroup B into left arch atretic and right arch atretic; (2) In Group II, we add three more subgroups, including aberrant right innominate artery, "isolated" right innominate artery (RIA), "isolated" right carotid artery with aberrant right subclavian artery; (3) In Groups I, II, and III, we add a subgroup of absence of both ductus arteriosus; and (4) In Group IV, we add three subgroups, including circumflex retro-esophageal aorta arch, persistent V aortic arch, and anomalous origin of pulmonary artery from ascending aorta.

OBJECTIVE: We aim to determine the accuracy of first-trimester ultrasonography in detecting fetal limb abnormalities. METHODS: This is a retrospective study of all women undergoing fetal nuchal translucency (NT) assessment and detailed fetal anatomic survey in the first trimester at a single tertiary-care referral center in China. Fetal anatomy scans were repeated in the second trimester. Detection of fetal limb abnormalities was compared between first and second trimester anatomy scans and confirmed at delivery or at autopsy. RESULTS: Analyzed were 9438 fetuses from 9197 women (241 twin pairs). The incidence of fetal limb abnormalities was 0.38% (36/9438). Of these, 28 (77.8%) were diagnosed prenatally: 23 (63.9%) on first trimester scan and 5 (13.9%) on second trimester scan. Limb reduction defects (usually transverse limb deficiencies) were the most common limb defects identified in the first trimester (n = 12), followed by clubfoot (n = 4), skeletal dysplasia (n = 3), sirenomelia (n = 1), limb dysplasia (n = 1), malposition (n = 1), and syndactyly (n = 1). Nine fetuses with isolated limb abnormalities had normal NT, while 74.1% (20/27) of limb abnormalities that were associated with other abnormalities had increased NT. CONCLUSIONS: This study demonstrates that the majority of limb abnormalities detected prenatally [23/28 (82%)] can be identified in the first trimester, especially major limb defects; however, our numbers are small and still need larger cases for further investigation.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the incidence, prenatal diagnosis, and perinatal outcome in fetuses with congenital dacryocystocele. METHODS: All cases of congenital dacryocystocele diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound were identified using an established perinatal database. Prenatal ultrasound images were reviewed, and perinatal outcome was abstracted from the medical records. The correlation between the cyst size, gestational age, and prenatal and neonatal outcome was analyzed. RESULTS: The overall incidence of fetal dacryocystocele was 0.016% (75/456,202). Fifty-three cases (70.7%) had unilateral, and 22 (29.3%) had bilateral lesions. Lesions were seen more commonly among female fetuses with a female : male ratio 1.48 : 1. The average diameter of cysts size was 6.9 ± 1.9 mm (3.3-11 mm). There was a direct correlation between cyst size and gestational age. Among the 75 cases, 8 were lost to follow-up, 3 underwent elective termination of pregnancy. 58 resolved spontaneously before birth, and 6 were confirmed at birth. Two developed neonatal infection requiring antibiotic treatment. All 6 cases confirmed at birth resolved without surgical resection. CONCLUSIONS: Congenital dacryocystocele can be diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound. Such lesions typically resolve spontaneously in utero or in the early neonatal period. Thus, it should be considered as a developmental variant rather than a structural birth defect.

OBJECTIVE: To detect structural changes in the brain in fetuses with agenesis of the corpus callosum (ACC) and holoprosencephaly (HPE) in the first trimester. METHODS: The ultrasound data were analyzed retrospectively in 620 normal singleton fetuses between 11 and 13(+6) gestational weeks, 5 fetuses diagnosed to have ACC, and 13 fetuses with HPE. The midbrain diameter (MD) and falx diameter (FD) were measured and their ratio (MD/FD) was calculated for comparative analysis. RESULTS: No significant difference was found in the MD, FD, and MD/FD ratio between fetuses with ACC and HPE (P>0.05). Compared to the normal fetuses, all the fetuses with ACC and HPE showed significantly increased mean MD and MD/FD ratio (P<0.05); 4 (80%) fetuses with ACC and 11 (84.6%) with HPE had a reduced FD. All the fetuses with ACC and HPE had MD/FD ratios greater than 1, which were below 1 in all the normal fetuses. CONCLUSION: In the first trimester, fetuses with ACC and HPE have measurable abnormalities in the midbrain and falx area of the brain, and these changes, represented by abnormal midsagittal MD, FD and their ratio, can be of value in detecting ACC or HPE in fetuses in the first trimester.

OBJECTIVE: To establish the normal reference ranges of transabdominal ultrasound measurements of the posterior fossa structure in fetuses at 11 to 13⁺6 gestational weeks and explore their clinical value in screening open spina bifida (OSB). METHODS: Between January, 2013 and September, 541 randomly selected normal fetuses underwent nuchal translucency at the gestational age 11 to 13⁺6 weeks. The parameters of the posterior fossa were measured in mid-sagittal view of the fetal face and the axial view of the transverse cerebellum insonated through the anterior fontanel by transabdominal ultrasound to establish the normal reference ranges. The measurements were obtained from 3 fetuses with OSB for comparison with the reference ranges. RESULTS: In normal fetuses, the parameters of the posterior fossa measured in the two views showed no significant differences (P>0.05). Two high echogenic lines were observed in normal fetuses, as compared with one in fetuses with OSB representing the posterior border of the brain stem and the anterior border of the fourth ventricle. The line between the posterior border of the fourth ventricle and the anterior border of the cisterna magna was not displayed in fetuses with OSB. The anteroposterior diameters of the brain stem, the fourth ventricle, and cisterna magna all increased in positive correlation with the crown-lump length in normal fetuses. In the 3 OSB fetuses, the anteroposterior diameter of the brain stem exceeded the 95th percentile and the anteroposterior diameter of fourth ventrical-cisterner magena was below the 5th percentile of the reference range for CRL; the brain stem to fourth ventrical-cisterner magena anteroposterior diameter ratio was increased to above 1. CONCLUSION: The established normal reference ranges of the parameters of fetal posterior fossa may provide assistance in early OSB detection. The absence of the posterior border of the fourth ventricle and the anterior border of the cisterna magna and a brainstem to fourth ventrical-cisterner magena anteroposterior diameter ratio greater than 1 can be indicative of OSB at 11 to 13⁺6 gestational weeks.

OBJECTIVE: To describe the sonographic features and perinatal outcome of congenital vascular rings diagnosed prenatally at a single tertiary care institution. METHODS: All cases of congenital vascular rings diagnosed by prenatal ultrasound between July 2005 and December 2009 were identified at a single referral center using an established perinatal database. The diagnosis was confirmed by postnatal echocardiography for live-born infants or autopsy for terminated cases. RESULTS: The overall incidence of vascular ring during this 5-year period was 0.086% (81 cases among 94 321 women undergoing perinatal ultrasound examination). Forty-four cases had complete O-shaped (n = 3) or U-shaped (n = 41) vascular rings, and 37 cases had incomplete C-shaped vascular rings (vascular slings). The most common type of vascular ring seen in 50.6% (41/81) of cases was a right aortic arch with aberrant left subclavian artery. The second most common type was a left aortic arch with an aberrant right subclavian artery [39.5% (32/81)]. Chromosomal analysis was performed prenatally in 46 pregnancies, and six cases (13.0%) of fetal aneuploidy were identified. CONCLUSIONS: Congenital vascular rings can be diagnosed with prenatal ultrasound using the three-vessel trachea view and subsequent fetal echocardiography with particular attention to the relationship of the aortic arches, ductal arches, and the trachea.
